Manchester City are confident they have a deal for Malaga winger Isco.

The Daily Mail says City hope to complete a £21million deal for Malaga midfielder Isco in the next 48 hours.

There were fears Real Madrid could hijack the transfer, and City were said to have grown increasingly concerned that the player seemed undecided.

But the 21-year-old looks to have chosen Manchester and indicated on Thursday that a deal could be tied up over the weekend.

The chance to work with new City boss Manuel Pellegrini, his coach at Malaga for the last two years, was a deciding factor in Isco’s decision.
